  • IPMPCC: Vulnerability, Adaptation and Traditional Knowledge

United Nations University (UNU), Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), Secretariat of the Convention on Biological Diversity (SCBD), United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), and United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) co-organized two workshops on “Indigenous Peoples, Marginalized Populations and Climate Change” (19-21 July 2011).

The workshop brought together representatives of indigenous peoples and marginalized populations, natural and social scientists, and other experts in relevant domains. The workshop aimed to identify, compile and analyse relevant indigenous and local observations, knowledge and practices related to understanding climate change impacts, adaptation and mitigation. The workshops provided a key opportunity to ensure that experience, sources of information and knowledge (scientific, indigenous and local), along with data and literature (scientific and grey), focusing on vulnerable and marginalized regions of the world were made available to the authors of the IPCC 5th Assessment Report and the global community.
